        (08/07/2000) strength to get wealth
Hello prayer warriors,

1. Prayer note: strength to get wealth

[Deuteronomy 8:18]
But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he
that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may
establish his covenant which he sware unto thy
fathers, as it is this day.

I heard a message by Pastor Joseph Prince about this
strength to get wealth. The Hebrew word here for
strength is "koach" which means strength, power,

This word is also used in [2 Kings 19:3]
And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day
is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and blasphemy: for
the children are come to the birth, and there is not
strength to bring forth.

How many of us are like this? God has given us a
vision of our future and we have received that vision
gladly but we give up half-way. It is just like a
woman giving birth to a child but not having enough
strength to bring it forth.

We need to ask God for the strength for the
breakthrough. We are not going to be farmers who give
up on our harvest before harvest time. We have planted
and we will toil until harvest time. How do we get
this strength?

The same word "koach" is found in [Isaiah 40:31]
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their
strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk,
and not faint.

We get this strength by waiting on God. It is He who
gives us the strength to carry on and it is He who
renews us so that we will mount up above the storm
with wings as eagles. That is what eagles do. When
faced with a storm, they do not flutter like a sparrow
against the storm, but they fly above the storm and
use the winds above the storm to soar even higher.

If you are exhausted and feel like giving up, wait
upon God to obtain this "koach" strength. Your
breakthrough might just be around the corner if you do
not give up.

2. New prayer requests:
i. stolen children -- grammy
my daughter & family have become victims of local DHS
office & her abusive ex-husband. She took her 8 mo old
baby to the er in dec for a bump & they accused her of
abusing the child. They examined the other 3 children,
found no abuse but removed the 3 yr-old anyway. Then
the ex filed suit when my daughter's attny quit becos
she had no more money & he managed to gain custody of
the girls. He has been arrested 2 times for spousal
abuse. God knows what had to be done.

pray for me. That I may know God's will & direction in
a relationship with a man, Fernando Roman, whom I love
& care for. At the moment we are not speaking & I had
been instructed through payer to forgive him. I am
asking that God give me courage & strength that I may
carry this out. pray that Fernando & I can work
through these opportunities presented by God, that our
relationship is transformed into a mutually loving,
safe & strong relationship as friends & partners in
love. If it is God's will I want to share my life as
his wife & mother of his children. pray for both of us
to heal from past hurts & wounds and to overcome our
fear. I ask this in Jesus' name & thank you God. I
pray for willingness, faith, surrender & to lift this
relationship to God's loving hands. Millie Martinez
